I have a problem with some applications in Cygwin

I have been using for many years and have not really had any major problems, but now I have run into a problem with some of the applications in Cygwin that I have been struggling with for some time without being able to solve it. Hopefully someone in this list can point me in the right direction to fix the problem.

I have a new Windows 10 PC with a fresh Cygwin installation, but struggles with some of the applications that I have installed. When I try to use applications like ssh, ssh-keygen, git, snmpwalk, snmpnext etc. they all just hangs and I am not able to stop them through CTRL-C. I need to use Task Manager to kill the application (kill -9 does not work either). But if I run the application from gdb (like 'gdb ssh-keygen' and the 'run') they seem to work. Most applications seems to work as expected, but not the ones I have listed (and maybe some more applications as well).

I think that this might be due to something in my PC, but are not able to pinpoint it. At one point I thought that this was due to the virus control in the PC (Trend), but now I have uninstalled this and just uses Windows defender.
